Wine Review: This golden yellow wine opens with really inviting ripe apple and apricot like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is creamy, shows some acidity, and shows juicy and slightly tart fruit salad like flavors. The finish is dry, zippy, and refreshing. This is a terrific option to have with havarti and crackers or just on its own. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The signature aromas in this vintage are a fragrant mixture of tropical pineapple, tapioca pudding, and floral — gardenia and honeysuckle. There is bright, crisp acidity with overtones of Meyer lemon and also a creamy mouthfeel. A note of hazelnut and spice harmonizes well with the toasty oak and lengthens the elegant finish.
